ore local students are graduating within six years of starting Grade 8, but the Chilliwack school district still lags almost seven per cent behind the provincial grad-rate average, according to 2011-12 statistics released last week. The district saw a 3.3 per cent increase in its six-year completion rate overall last year, with a 5.1 per cent gain among girls and a 1.4 per cent bump among boys. Since grad rates in the province as a whole i m p r ov e d by less than one per cent, 2011-12 saw Chilliwack make SCAN FOR WEBSITE the biggest gains against the provincial average in more than 10 years. One important area where this didn’t apply, however, was among aboriginal students. While the provincial average there went up by 2.7 per cent, Chilliwack saw a 2.7 per cent decline, putting its aboriginal rate 3.5 per cent below the provincial average. Before last year, grad rates in Chilliwack had consistently come in about 10 per cent below the provincial average for more than a decade. But local officials now say those figures haven’t accurately reflected the real picture in Chilliwack because the traditional six-year

Public meeting with FHA to be held Tuesday BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
hilliwack residents will have a chance to give the Fraser Health Authority (FHA) a piece of their mind about drinking water chlorination at a meeting scheduled for next week. The meeting has been scheduled by FHA in response to a groundswell of opposition to the order delivered to the city on Feb. 5. A petition at www.chilliwackwater. com started on Feb. 9 had 3,407 signatures by Wednesday afternoon.
Chilliwack MLA John Les also came no longer be on the file and his boss, out strongly opposed to FHA’s order Dr. Paul Van Buynder, Chief Medical Officer for Fraser Health, has been in that the city chlorinate its water. “If this isn’t the epitome of lunacy, I communication with the city.

wack Alliance Church. She also suggested FHA staff might want to bring their pajamas. “It will be a long night,” she said. At Tuesday’s meeting, director of public works Glen MacPherson gave an update to council on the city’s water system and the ongoing controversy over the chlorination edict. MacPherson said the city is willing to increase the $3 million a year spent on maintenance, increase flushing from two to three times a year, and increase sampling to twice weekly. He said the city has also asked FHA if chlorination of the hillside areas could be done considering there has never been a case of E. coli detected in the main distribution system that serves 97 per cent of the city. ◗ The FHA meeting is scheduled for Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. at Chilliwack Alliance Church.
isitors to the restaurant in the Chances Chilliwack gaming centre still won’t be able to dance to the music after city council rejected an application at Tuesday’s meeting. Couns. Chuck Stam, Ken Huttema, Ken Popove and Stewart McLean voted against Great Canadian Gaming’s liquor licence amendment application to allow for patron participation in the dining area and the outdoor patio of The Well restaurant. The matter was in front of council for the second time after a deadlocked three-three vote in January left the matter in limbo. After spirited discussion at that Jan. 22 meeting, Couns. Ken Huttema, Chuck Stam and Ken Popove voted to deny the application while Couns. Jason Lum, Stewart McLean and Mayor Sharon Gaetz voted to approve. Coun. Sue Attrill was absent. Tie votes on motions to approve and deny were defeated sending the matter back this week for reconsideration. Owners of a number of local pubs submitted letters and spoke in opposition to the application. Both Friendly Mike’s general manager John Toussaint and Corky’s owner Bob Harms were in attendance in January and again Tuesday to speak in opposition. “Why tweak a food-primary licence and then open up a can of worms then all other food primary could do the same?” Toussaint asked. “If they want a liquor primary

then apply for it.” Great Canadian Gaming vice-president Howard Blank was also again in attendance to defend the application. Also at the meeting were a number of other individuals supporting the casino’s application, including performer Gary Savard, president of the Fraser Valley Magic Circle, a group of local magicians. Other residents also spoke in favour of the liquor licence amendment calling the restriction against patron participation at food primary establishments silly. “Let ‘em go, let’s have some fun,” resident Bob Buhler told council. Coun. Ken Huttema asked Blank why the corporation was asking for the liquor licence amendment now if they always knew they were going to have entertainment. Blank said they were not allowed to apply for the patron participation until the food primary licence was received. He also said the business has been public about the fact that eventually they want a liquor primary licence. After the public hearing, Attrill moved to approve the application, which was seconded by Lum. In discussing the matter, both Huttema and McLean said if the owners wanted a liquor primary licence then they should apply for that instead of this stop-gap measure. The application was defeated by councillors four to two. McLean voted in favour of the application on Jan. 22 and his change of heart led to its defeat as Gaetz likely would have broken the tie in favour of the amendment. Council’s decision is not final as the application will now be forwarded to the provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch for final approval.

News GRAD RATE, from page 1 rate doesn’t account for factors like the district’s large number of distance learning students, who may graduate but not within a six-year timeframe. When such factors are accounted for, Chilliwack doesn’t actually have a grad-rate problem, assistant superintendent Rohan Arul-Pragasam told the Times. Superintendent Evelyn Novak didn’t include completion rates as an area of concern in her Superintendent’s Report on Student Achievement to the ministry last month despite the seven per cent gap between provincial and local six-year completion averages. Instead of six-year rates, that report used four-year rates that factored out
Numbers can be deceiving students in distance education, alternate education and continuing education. The district’s four-year completion rate was 84 per cent last year, up three per cent from the year before. This trend was cited in Novak’s report as evidence of improvement in the district’s completion-rate results. (No provincial comparators were provided.) The shortcomings of the education ministry’s six-year completion statistics are the subject of a ministry pilot program in five B.C. school districts aimed at developing a new measure that provincial officials are calling a “Success Rate.”
One of the districts involved (Kamloops-Thompson) saw a 6.3 per cent jump in its grad rate after factoring out students who had died, moved away, were visiting temporarily on exchange or had such serious disabilities they were never expected to graduate. The ministry—which plans to replace the six-year completion rate with the new Success Rate after officials have had a chance to test the concept—will be working with all districts in the upcoming months, according to a ministry spokesman. In the interim, he said both the new rate and the old six-year completion rate will be tracked and made public.

MARIJUANA, from page 1 There are also serious concerns about illegal activity connected to medical marijuana grow operations and the lack of oversight by Health Canada. But the medical marihuana access regulations (MMAR) will be changing soon and the government is looking for feedback up until Feb. 28. “Current medical marihuana regulations have left the system open to abuse,” Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq said in December, when the proposed changes and consultation period was announced. “We have heard real concerns from law enforcement, fire officials, and municipalities about how people are hiding behind these rules to conduct illegal activity, and putting health and safety of Canadians at risk. These changes will make it far more difficult for people to game the system.” When asked if Health Canada inspected local medical marijuana growers to ensure compliance with reg-
Concerns over system abuse ulations and other laws, a spokesperson said “inspectors for the Controlled Substances Program (CSP) use a riskbased approach to monitor and promote compliance with the Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) and its regulations. The CSP conducts approximately 180 inspections on regulated parties per year for all controlled substances and precursor chemicals.” Part of why changes are proposed is because of government concern about abuse of the system, the spokesperson told the Times. Under the proposed changes, individuals will also no longer be allowed to grow marijuana in their place of residence. When the new rules come into effect on April 1, 2014, licensed producers will be required to notify local governments, police forces and fire officials of their intention to apply to Health Can-

ada so authorities will be aware of the location of the grow-ops. At Tuesday’s meeting, city council approved a staff recommendation to respond to Health Canada about its concerns over zoning, licensing, bylaws, health, safety and security related to medicinal marijuana grow operations. At that meeting, Coun. Chuck Stam also expressed concern that medical marijuana production permitted on farm land could pressure on the agricultural community. He suggested the topic should be brought to the attention of the Union of B.C. Municipalities. ◗ See the Chilliwack Times next week for more on this subject, including the firsthand experiences of those living adjacent to medical marijuana grow operations in commercial and residential areas.

Chilliwack senior pronounced dead after Yale Road crash
Chilliwack senior was pronounced dead at the scene of a single-vehicle accident on Yale Road Tuesday after-
noon. Mounties say Doris Lovejoy’s 1994 Toyota Camry left the north side of Yale Road—east of Upper Prairie Road—and struck a tree just after 4 p.m. Lovejoy, 83, was the lone human occupant of the car; a small dog belonging to Lovejoy and named Smudgie suffered injuries to its
legs and was taken to a local animal hospital. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said Lovejoy had various health conditions and that a cause of death has not been determined. Police hailed the actions of passing motorists, who extinguished a fire in the Camry’s engine and cared for the injured dog until animal control arrived on the scene. - Staff
Woman charged with dealing heroin, cocaine and meth
ew charges have been laid against a Chilliwack woman already awaiting trial stemming from a police raid on her house last summer. On Feb. 12, police stopped a vehicle on Princess Avenue, near the Chilliwack Law Courts. Drug officers seized what they are calling a “large quantity” of heroin, crystal methamphetamine, and powder and crack cocaine. Police say the drugs have an estimated street
value of about $2,275. Three counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking have been laid against 38-yearold Lisa Millar. At the time of her arrest, Millar was still awaiting trial on drug dealing charges laid last summer after police executed a search warrant on her Ashwell Road home. Millar face five counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking in connection to that case.
Arsonist gets to house before firefighters can burn it down BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
Prairie Central Road house destined to go up in flames burned to the ground Monday evening, but not in the way the Chilliwack Fire Department had hoped. Fire officials had been preparing the unoccupied house to be used for training exercises over the next couple weeks. The training was intended to culminate with a live fire exercise that would destroy the building. But arsonists got to the house first. Fire crews arrived at the house—in the 46000 block of Prairie Central Road—just before 10 p.m. to find it fully involved. Firefighters contained the blaze and eventually extinguished the flames, but not before the house was completely destroyed. Assistant fire chief Ian Josephson said the
department’s training plans didn’t go up in smoke with the house. He said crews are now prepping another rural Chilliwack house to be used for training purposes. Still, fire officials aren’t happy about what they and the Chilliwack RCMP are calling an arson. “It takes away a training opportunity for us,” Josephson said. “It’s a structure fire that we’re not planning on having, so you always put firefighters at risk whenever you’re going to something like this.” Josephson said Monday’s fire was the first time during his time with the department arsonists had burned down a house intended for training. ◗ Anyone with information is asked to contact the RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Bugged about catching bugs S
ometimes I find the English language annoying. I didn’t catch this bug. It caught me. Believe me, I have caught lots of bugs. I caught them in fields and in trees and in ponds and all sorts of places when I was a little kid. Bugs and frogs—I caught plenty of both—as well as lizards and toads and all manner of creatures incapable of fighting back, but I digress. I caught hundreds of bugs while studying entomology in university many, many years ago (long enough now that I could easily add one more “many” without fearing accusations of exaggeration). It may seem the same, within the context of the English language and the way we normally use it, but there’s a significant difference between catching bugs and getting caught by a bug. The difference boils down to who feels good about the catching. Ask a bug collector or entomologist—or even an exterminator—and they’ll all agree that, when you (the human, in this catch phrase) catch a bug, it generally feels pretty good. That’s especially true when it’s a bug you’ve been specifically hunting for some time: a special butterfly, a particular sphecoid wasp, one of the rarer carabid beetles, but I am digressing once
Be Our Guest again. In any case, it surely doesn’t feel bad at all to catch a bug (for us, as the catchers, that is—the bugs probably aren’t as happy about being pinned to a piece of cardboard and being euthanized with ether). Conversely, it never feels good when a bug catches you. Likewise, I find it annoying when people suggest they have something that is good for a bug that is wreaking havoc with my physiological processes. I know I tend to be more easily annoyed while in the grips of a particularly nasty bug such as the one that has grabbed hold of me this past little while. But I do not want something that is good for a bug that is running roughshod over my flagging constitution (which is significantly different from a constitutional flag—like the Red Maple Leaf whose adoption by Canada’s parliament is celebrated annually, albeit rather quietly this year, on Feb. 15, which was last Friday, but I am digressing yet again). And neither would you want
something that is good for your bug, I’ll bet you three bugs and a lizard. When you are being assaulted by a bug, you would be a fool to want something that is good for the bug. You want something that is bad for the bug. You want something that is good for you. Clarity, folks. It’s something that is too often missing from our language. And it is something that has been missing from my nasal passages for far too long. Indeed, I’ll accept any reasonable suggestions for things that may be bad for the bug that has caught me. And while I am venting my annoyance over the noisome bug that is tromping all over my personal concept of paradise, I notice that the provincial government has proudly proclaimed that it has amended the Wildlife Act to make hunting “more accessible” to youth. Hunting and using guns is now easier than ever for kids as early as age 10. That’s what we need, in this day and age of mass murders and the Great American Gun Debate raging south of the border: more kids with more guns. Hey! Can anybody shoot this bug for me? ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.
ast week, the federal Conservative government moved in a direction that Canadians have not been used to seeing them go—backwards. The government announced that it was going to let its much-reviled Bill C-30— commonly known as the Internet surveillance bill—die. Had it passed, the bill would have forced Internet service providers to turn over information to police and allow them to snoop on electronic communications without bothering with the niceties of obtaining warrants. The bill prompted outrage—and rightly so—from federal and provincial privacy commissioners, from civil liberties advocates, and from a burgeoning group of online activists. It’s hard to accept Justice Minister Rob Nicholson’s claim that government decided to change course because it was listening to the criticisms Canadians voiced about the bill. Other recent decisions by the Conservatives have prompted equal or greater public vitriol, but in every one of those cases, the government has stuck to its guns. Elimination of the long-form census and removing federal Fisheries Act protections with an omnibus budget bill were met with almost universal revulsion, yet the Conservatives would not blink. It’s more likely that Nicholson, et al., finally foresaw what even casual Charter nerds were screaming: that this law would be struck down at its first court challenge, and at every challenge thereafter. If public opposition really did make the difference in this rare instance, big kudos are owed to the Internet activists and privacy advocates who kept the issue front and centre. They might have saved us from a fundamental change in the relationship between our government and the people it serves—one in which privacy would have been replaced with snooping.

There is no comparison Editor: I am in disbelief by the misguided information that Dr. Lem actually believes exists. He is a doctor and for some reason he appears to have difficulty understanding the difference between surface water and underground water. It is proven without question and with scientific proof that our underground water in Chilliwack is safe for drinking, has been safe for decades and remains safe to drink. It is pure, it is naturally filtered and poses no health risk whatsoever to our community. He has taken the stance that three reported cases of E. coli from surface water, the key words here being “surface water,” not underground naturally filtered water, has been identified since 1978— three cases in 35 years. How is it even possible only three people in 35 years acquired E. coli from surface water when so many hundreds who drank the water the same day did not? The water that was in question on three occasions is isolated to small pockets of the community and the city has already taken measures to effectively destroy any further occurence, albeit so fleetingly rare. Has Dr. Lem even listened to himself? He openly compares surface water to underground water springs where it is scientifically proven to not contain E. coli yet he seems oblivious to this fact. Anyone can clearly read between the lines that there is much more going on here than his “my way or the highway” position. The mayor has thankfully taken the community’s response to such a ludicrous argument and I applaud Mayor Gaetz for standing up to the Health Authority, and in particular this Dr. Lem. As a community citizen, I ask myself how and why did Dr. Lem even bring this issue up? Are local business water suppliers in distress that by chlorinating our water their business will increase? I am in total agreement with the Reimers and Short and by the many petitioners who are rightfully opposing such a ludicrous demand on our pure water supply. Blaine Everett Chilliwack
White Rock had same situation Editor: I have been keeping up with the news regarding Fraser Health Authority’s order for the City of Chilliwack to chlorinate its drinking water. Two weeks prior to FHA meeting with Chilliwack council a number of us in White Rock questioned FHA
considered to be the source of E. coli. This well was shallow, 15 metres, unlikeWhite Rock’s wells, which are almost 10 times deeper, and was located in a farmer’s field which only a few weeks prior to the outbreak had fresh animal manure spread on the field. The ground below the surface was made up of fractured rocks which allowed surface water to move quickly through and into the aquifer. The well had a history of problems going back more than 15 years. The persons responsible for maintainingWalkerton’s drinking water were not qualified and had not informed the health authorities of the presence of dangerously high levels of coliform when they were aware of it. It was found that there was a deliberate attempt to cover it up. One person went to jail for their involvement in Walkerton’s tragedy. To suggest that the qualified men and women who maintain the drinking water system inWhite Rock would, like a fewWalkerton employees, deliberately cause deaths and illnesses is shameful. Phil Le Good White Rock
Time to stand up and fight Editor: I want to start off this letter and say that I am like most other Canadians. We sit back and complain and whine and take it on the chin and get on with our day. Impose a new tax. We bitch about it a little bit then pay. Raise the gas prices. A new topic to complain about over coffee, and then just fill up again. Now they want to add chlorine to our water. One of the things that I do admire about First Nation’s people is that when they have a cause, they march, block a road. They make their voice heard. They stand up. And that is why they are slowly making progress. I am not sure what my voice will do but I signed the petition at www.chilliwackwater. com and sent a letter to the Fraser Health Authority and to my local MLA and encourage everyone to do the same.

McGrath leaves Hospice BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
fter seven years at the helm of the Chilliwack Hospice Society, Geri McGarth is ready to take on a new challenge as executive director of the Vancouver Hospice Society early next month. The decision to pull up stakes in Chilliwack, however, hasn’t been an easy one. “It’s been one of the most difficult decisions I’ve had to make,” she told the Times Tuesday. “I’m going to miss my community; I’m going to miss my team; I’m just going to miss it all.” But the new position was an offer she just couldn’t refuse. Her first task as ED will be to pull together a brand new team, including both hospice society staff and medical staff, to prepare for the opening of the Vancouver Hospice’s brand new six-bed facility. “They’ve been quite small but they’ve grown,” said McGrath of the Vancouver organization. “They’ve raised the money to build this facility and they’ve built the facility. Now they’re ready to take the next step and so they’ve hired me to help them go there.” Every hospice society is different, McGrath said.
Chilliwack Hospice executive director Geri McGrath will take up a new position with the Vancouver Hospice Society next month. The Chilliwack Hospice, for example, doesn’t manage local hospice beds, partnering instead with Cascade Lodge (a for-profit organization) and Fraser Health. “The bulk of our work is supporting the community, in the hospital, in their homes and, of course, at our centre here,” McGrath said. In Vancouver, however, the hospice raised capital to build its own facility, and will now manage its own beds—a venture McGrath will be in charge of right from the beginning. “It’s very exciting,” she said. As for the job she’s leav-
ing, McGrath said she’s most proud of the team she has gathered around her over the last six years. “We work so well together, and we’ve grown the organization, quadrupled the programs and our volunteer base,” she said. The organization has also made some strides towards more dependable sources of funding during McGrath’s tenure in the form of the hospice’s Thrifty Boutique second-hand store. “ W h e n yo u’re re l y i n g on events year to year and you’re hoping to get gaming each year, it’s really hard to plan ahead with programs,” McGrath said. “So we have had to be very careful not to offer programs that we can’t sustain . . . but something that’s given us a bit more stability is our Thrifty Boutique.” The Chilliwack Hospice Society board hopes to have McGrath’s replacement in place by March 11. It’s a challenging role, McGrath said, one that requires a systems thinker, good communicator, deep listener and a person who knows how to take care of self and staff to avoid burnout. ◗ For more information, visit www.chilliwackhospice.org.

Faith Today BY HUGO REIMER Sardis Community Church
van I used to own began making horrible noise every time I stepped on the brakes. It was annoying and inconvenient and certainly not planned. At that point I had several options. I could ignore the piercing noise and hope that it would go away on its own. I could stop using the brakes—perhaps not the best option, especially going down steep hills or when impeded by other vehicles on the road. I could put on noise-canceling earphones that would help me ignore the noise. I could blame the car manufacturer and write angry letters to the manufacturer of all brake parts. The other option, one which I favoured at that time, was to drive the van over the cliff, since this was just
A piercing noise
one more repair that needed to be taken care of in an escalating list of repairs. Or, I suppose, I could take the van to the mechanic have them fix it and pay the hefty bill. I was on a first-name basis with most of the mechanics by now anyway. Anger is like that, frustrating, unplanned, annoying and potentially costly to deal with. It lets us know that we need to pay attention and tend to some issues needing fixing. Anger is the result of lost of control; it is the result of having something taken away from us, or a barrier between what we need or
think we need. When we become angry we have several options. We can ignore it and hope whatever we need, or whatever has been taken from us, will go away. The problem with trying to bury or suppress anger is that it is never buried dead, it is buried alive and has a way of boiling and growing. It takes a tremendous amount of emotional energy to keep it buried and a lid on it, so that when there is a crack in our emotional lid, we explode with much more energy than a situation elicits. We could explode and try to gain

control by lashing out at those around us or those who have wronged us. Yet anger doesn’t dissipate just because we unleash it. We could blame everyone and everything for our pain and lostness, or we could try to numb the pain by running away emotionally or escaping from reality . . . and it becomes easy to justify the need for a “little relaxation.” All of us get angry and have to deal with it.

which seems out of control, do not rob others’ dignity and value in a desperate effort to regain your own. View your anger as a signal. It is not something to be escaped. It is not something to be suppressed. It is something to be accepted as a sign that some deeper threat or loss has occurred that needs your attention. Anger is a clarion call and opportunity to talk to God and then to listen to the ways in which God meets our real needs. Pray for the people who made you angry, that driver who cut you off, or that friend who betrayed you. Invite the voice of God to dissipate and tend to the piercing noise of our hurting hearts.

BCHL Showcase returns to Prospera
BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
fter a successful first run last September, the British Columbia Hockey League’s Showcase event will return to Chilliwack and Prospera Centre this fall. And while the Chilliwack Chiefs haven’t yet committed to hosting the event every year, BCHL commissioner John Grisdale said the league would support the club if it wished to do so. The first Showcase kicked off the 2012-13 BCHL schedule by having all 16 teams play a pair of regular season games each in Chilliwack. The event was designed to give scouts the chance to see every player in the league in one convenient location. Organizers had hoped to draw 70 scouts from National Hockey League teams and major American colleges. Instead, more than 200 showed up. While fan attendance was lower than organizers had hoped for, Chiefs president Glen Ringdal said feedback from scouts was uniformly positive, with many saying the showcase was among the very best in North America. That had Grisdale saying that, despite some interest in hosting the Showcase from West Kelowna, “it was a no-brainer” to have the event return to Chilliwack.
A scout consults his notes during last September’s inaugural BCHL Showcase at Propsera Centre. “Once the Chiefs let it be known they were interested in hosting, I think the consistency of having it in this location was a big relief and [West Kelowna] gladly handed over the reigns to the Chiefs,” he told the Times. While Ringdal made it clear the
Chiefs had not committed to hosting the Showcase on an annual basis, Grisdale said the league wouldn’t be opposed to seeing that happen. “From my position, if the Chilliwack Chief hockey club and the city is willing to host it, we would certainly support it 110 per cent from
TIMES - file
the league-office side.” Ringdal spoke last year about the effort it took to host such a large event. But on Wednesday, he said keeping the event in Chilliwack made the most sense from the point of view of a member of BCHL’s board of governors.
With the Showcase still in its infancy, Ringdal said it would have been risky to move the event. “To take it and transplant it to another city, I think would not have been the right choice,” he said. He noted that Chilliwack is ideally suited for the event because of the two sheets of ice at Prospera Centre, the team’s support in the community, the proximity of the city to major airports in both Vancouver and Seattle and local amenities. “It is, quite frankly, a perfect location,” he said, adding that keeping the event in Chilliwack will benefit the city’s economy. The Showcase will attract some 500 players, team staff and scouts to town, not to mention the supporters of the clubs. An analysis by Showcase co-chair Clint Hames suggested the event had a total economic impact of more than a half-million dollars in Chilliwack Ringdal said there will be tweaks to packages and pricing of tickets to try and lure more out-of-town fans to the event. There are other changes in the works too. Ringdal said tickets to the two Chiefs games will be included in next year’s season ticket package. And the arena will erect temporary, elevated seating in Prospera Centre’s secondary rink just for scouts. ◗ The Showcase is set to run Sept. 6 to 8.

Cascades earn first title Face Saskatchewan in quarter-finals this weekend after ending season 18-4
he University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s basketball team defeated the Trinity Western University Spartans in back-to-back games to claim UFV’s first-ever Canada West regular season title. The Cascades, who boast a roster stacked with Chilliwack talent, followed a 77-66 home win over the Spartans Friday with an 84-76 victory Saturday to finish their season with an 18-4 record and claim first place in the Canada West Pacific Division.
UFV will face the University of Saskatchewan (13-9) this weekend in quarter-final playoff action at the Envision Athletic Centre in Abbotsford. Despite a strong outing by the Spartans over the weekend, the Cascades proved too strong. Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks led UFV Saturday with 16 points and 14 rebounds as the Cascades pulled away from their valley rivals in the third quarter. Columbia Valley’s Kayli Sartori added 14 points and seven rebounds in the win. On Friday, UFV jumped out to an early eight-point lead, watched it slip away in the second quarter, and then rediscovered their game just before the half. The Cascades held the Spartans off the rest of the way. Nicole Wierks, also of Chilliwack, led all Cascade shooters with 17 points, 11 rebounds and five assists.
Close but no medals for Spartan swimmers at Western Canadians
hree athletes from Chilliwack Spartan Swim Club narrowly missed stepping onto the podium at last weekend’s Western Canadian Championships in Saskatoon. Carson Olafson, Jessie Gibson and Colton Peterson competed at the meet, which featured 400 of western Canada’s top qualified swimmers. Gibson, swimming in the 15-and-under girls division, claimed two fourth-place finishes, in the 100-metre and 200-metre butterfly events. She also finished ninth in the 50-metre butter-
fly and 10th in the 200-metre freestyle. Olafson, competing in the men’s 16-andunder category, finished fourth in the 100metre butterfly, seventh in the 800-metre freestyle, eighth in the 400-metre freestyle and ninth in the 200-metre backstroke. Peterson, swimming in the same category, pushed himself to three fifth-place finishes: in the 100- and 200-metre breaststroke races and the 200-metre individual medley. ◗ For more information on the Spartans, visit email@example.com or call 604858-7946.

Thanks Bruce, I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future.

Recycle your yard waste into valuable compost
omposting may be a person’s first foray into an eco-friendly lifestyle. Compost is a nutrient-rich natural fertilizer that some people refer to as “black gold.” It can be made from most types of lawn and garden waste as well as some discarded items from the kitchen. Many people have renewed interest in composting because they understand the environmental ramifications of over-reliance on chemical fertilizers. Groundwater may become contaminated and certain fertilizers may have adverse effects on wildlife. Compost, a living organism of sorts, comprised of beneficial bacteria, insect life and nutrients for plants is on the other side of the plant food spectrum. Because it can be generated for little to no cost, compost is not only environmentally responsible but economical as well. A home landscape can provide a wealth of material to use in a compost heap or bin. Rather than putting fallen leaves or lawn clippings to the curb or in the trash, they can be turned into beneficial material to help keep your garden self-sustained. To begin, you will first need to determine the composting method that will work for you. Compost can be generated from a pile of material placed in an out-of-the-way corner of the yard or created in a specially designed, expensive compost bin. Many homeowners fall in between these two methods with their
compost systems. Most create their own bins from wood and chicken wire or even use a trash container to contain the compost. Once the container or pile location is established, it is time to start the compost recipe. In order to function optimally, compost should have an abundance of aerobic bacteria, which will compost the waste quickly. Aerobic bacteria need oxygen and a certain amount of moisture to survive. Therefore, it is important to include materials in the compost that will achieve these conditions. Composters frequently refer to “greens” and “browns” in a compost mix. Greens are fresh leaves and grass clippings and kitchen scraps. These materials will have an abundance of moisture as well as nitrogen. Browns are older, dried out plant material and wood. The browns help create air cushions in the compost that facilitate aeration and also contain carbon. Without aeration, the compost will compact down too quickly, which could slow down the decomposition process. This may result in a foul odour. Avoid the use of bones, meat or cheese in a compost bin. This will only attract scavengers and may rot faster than it can be decomposed by the bacteria. Also, avoid pet waste or any lawn trimmings that have been treated with pesticides. Turning the compost will help keep it
Twigs can be mulched and included as brown material in compost.

Avoid adding weeds to juvenile compost because it may not be hot enough to kill the seeds and then you’ll be stuck with weeds in the compost—and wherever you place that compost. Moisture is essential to the compost. Each time you add new material to the compost bin, dampen it. It should be moist but not dripping. Adding a

irty windows are unsightly, and they can prevent beneficial sunlight from entering a home. Cleaning windows need not be done every week, but it shouldn’t be overlooked completely, either. While it certainly may be a chore to clean windows, there are ways to make the task much more tolerable. Curb appeal can be very important when selling a home. Even a home with a perfectly manicured lawn and the newest roofing and siding can seem unappealing if the windows are dirty. Keeping windows clean requires a good deal of work. For the acrophobics, cleaning second-storey windows can test the nerves. Having the right tools on hand and a strategy in place will make the job easier to manage. Cleaning windows Cleaning windows won’t necessarily be easy, but the following nine-step process can make the task less difficult and time-consuming. 1. Choose a day when it is overcast so you will not be blinded by the sun while cleaning. This also helps prevent streaking. Begin by gathering what you’ll need to get the task done. Having everything at the ready will enable you to move from one window to the next. Here are the basic supplies you will need: ◗ cleaning solution ◗ cloth, newspaper or squeegee ◗ towel ◗ spray bottle ◗ extension pole to reach high windows ◗ vacuum ◗ ladder or step stool ◗ garden hose 2. Take down and clean drapery or blinds when cleaning the windows. Remove the curtains so you will have an unobstructed surface with which to work. 3. Start with the interior side of the windows, as they are easier to access. Place a towel on the sill to catch any drops so the sill or the floor will stay dry. 4. Spray a lint-free cloth or the window directly with the cleaning solution. The edges and corners of the window tend to accumulate the most grime, so begin by cleaning those areas first. Once they are clean and you will not move dirt to the centre of the window, work on the middle. Wipe the

Transform Your Kitchen! windows in a horizontal direction to help alleviate dripping. 5. To create a streak-free surface, some people prefer to use a squeegee to drag out any pockets of moisture for more even drying. Be sure to wipe the rubber strip of the squeegee after each pass on the window.You may choose to buff out any other streaks with newspaper. 6. Vacuum the window sill and frame afterward to catch any dust and debris. 7. Repeat the process for all interior windows. 8. Move outdoors and start off by spraying the window with a garden hose to loosen any of the accumulated grime. Use your cleaning solution to dissolve the rest of the dirt. You may want to let it sit on the window if there is stubborn grime. Repeat the cleaning process used indoors for each window. 9. If exterior second-floor windows
are hard to reach, consider using a ladder and extension pole to extend your reach. Upper windows will not be scrutinized as closely as lower windows, so you may have a greater margin for error. If the windows are simply too high up, rely on a professional window cleaner to get the job done rather than risk falls or other injuries. Mix your own cleaning solution It may take trial and error to find a solution that works. Here is one recipe you may want to start with. 1 cup white vinegar 11/2cups rubbing alcohol 2 drops of dish soap Pour into a clean and empty spray bottle. Remember: Never mix bleach and ammonia together to create a cleaning solution, as toxic fumes will result.
Heat speeds up the process balance between greens and browns should help regulate the moisture level as well. Remember, during warmer months, the compost may dry out more, so you will need to be on top of the moisture levels. The composting process works best at temperatures between 120 and 150 F. The compost will generate its own heat as matter is broken down. However, the heat of warm months can speed up the
process. Novice composters may want to begin their composting in the summer as a first attempt. Hot composting piles can be turned into soil fertilizer in as little as eight to 10 weeks. Therefore, plan your composting start date accordingly. Soon after you may have a naturally sustainable garden that produces material enough to continually feed your existing compost pile.

Plant broad beans this month
ne of the most rugged, carefree and useful beans for our cool, wet coastal climate is the fava bean or broad bean—and February is the time when planting season can begin for varieties destined for the kitchen. Aside from producing tasty beans, favas leave the soil richer than they found it by fixing nitrogen in nodules on their roots. They don’t mind slightly acidic soil, can also handle clay and even soil which is somewhat salty. These beans are popular all over the world and are said to still grow wild in their original habitat of Algeria. As early as 3,000 BC they were apparently being eaten by Egyptians, Romans and Greeks. But until Columbus discovered America and brought back other bean varieties, favas were the only beans that Europeans knew. Young fava beans are the most flavourful and can be eaten like green peas. They’re even more tasty with a sprig or two of mint added to the pot. The young beans freeze beautifully too. Dried fava beans will store well for months. When they’re cooked, their soft centre is the base for many kinds of dips and spreads. In the garden, favas stand
Green Thumb straight up on thick, square stems about four feet tall. But when the pods begin to fill out they start leaning at different angles. That’s why its best to place a tall stake at each end of each row and run string between them. The plants still lean slightly but their companions stop the bed from turning into a shambles. Fava flowers are so heavily fragrant they scent the whole area. Most are white with a black blotch, but one heritage fava ‘Cambridge Scarlet’ has red flowers and bright green beans. It’s a dwarf variety and the beans are also quite small. Where different varieties of favas are grown together, they will cross-pollinate. If Cambridge Scarlet is one, you can end up with a stunning mix of flowers from white to pale pink to hot pink to purplered. The bean shapes, colours and heights of the plants are equally diverse. Even when soil is not especially fertile, these beans can still produce an adequate
crop. As well, by the time other kinds of beans need frequent watering, favas have finished cropping and the bed can be cleared for second-season vegetables such as broccoli or Brussels sprouts. Although favas can apparently develop rust or fungal infections this doesn’t seem to happen frequently. But attacks by the black bean aphid can be a yearly occurrence dealt with by removing the tender top leaves. Unlike other aphids, the black aphids attach very firmly and few of them are dislodged by blasts of water from hoses. The first warning signal is when ants become visible on the tops of the fava plants. That’s when gardeners who want to do a pre-emptive strike will pinch out the top of each bean plant. The aphids don’t bother moving down to the tough lower leaves. If you mulch favas with grass clippings around the time that mowing begins you can manage to avoid weeding from seedling emergence through to composting the mature plants. Mulching is best started down the rows and as the seedlings enlarge. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via email@example.com.

How to write your own last will and testament Few people, young or old, look forward to writing a will. A will is not an easy subject to broach, but it is important to have documents in place to ease the burden for family members. When a person dies without a will, his or her assets might not go where he or she intended. In some instances, assets might go to the government. For parents who die before their children are grown, a will can also serve as a legal document indicating a plan for custody of the kids. Although it is often preferable to consult with a local estateplanning attorney who understands the language and legalities surrounding a will, it is also possible to write a will yourself. There are forms that can be purchased from office-supply stores, or a will can be prepared online by answering questions and then generating a form to print. The will also can be typed or handwritten. Handwritten wills are called holographic wills

and may not be recognized unless written during an emergency situation, such as a fatal illness. Laws regarding wills vary based on where you live. Therefore, learn the legalities before preparing a will so you will have a document that holds up in a court of law and can be executed to your desires. Here is some of the basic information that may be included in your will. • Include your name, address, date of birth, and social security numbers if they will better help identify you should there be confusion. • State that you are of sound mind when writing this will and of contractual capacity. • Write a statement indicating that this will revokes all other wills that may have been executed before. • List the names and addresses of all of your children. If the children are minors, at this point you can also specify your wishes with regards to their guardianship. List the names and addresses of the people whom you wish to have custody of your children. • Appoint an executor or executrix to carry out the affairs of your estate and instructions specified in the will. This person typically must be over the age of 18. Select someone whom you trust to honor your wishes. • Indicate how you want the executor to handle your financial affairs, including paying taxes, funeral costs, final expenses, etc. At this point you also may want to spell out where you would like to be buried and any specific requests with regard to the funeral, viewing, and any other funeral-related details. • Indicate the executor has permission to sell your home and personal belongings that are not included in personal gifts to be distributed. • List any gifts you would like to be distributed to certain people. This may be a doll collection to a daughter, coins to a son, china to an aunt, etc. • Specify the percentages of your assets to be distributed should the listed beneficiaries survive you. Maybe you want to divide your estate evenly between two children. If so, allocate 50 percent to one and 50 percent to the other. You may have more specific breakdowns. Should these people not survive you, you
can establish an alternate or list nothing, in which case the assets will be put back into the general pot. • Include a residuary clause that states how to distribute any remaining assets. • State whether you want the executor to be reimbursed for any expenses that result from executing the will. • Indicate that you would like the executor to post bond as a form of insurance so that the executor can’t run off with the money for himself. • Name an alternative executor should the first pass away before executing the will or if he or she is unable to serve upon your death. • Sign the will in front of two or three witnesses (check what is required where you live) and a notary public. The witnesses cannot be anyone named in the will. This article is intended as general information about what is typically covered in a standard will. It should not be taken as legal advice. Prior to implementing any of these tips, consult with an attorney certified in estate planning.
Although it is often preferable to consult with a local estate-planning attorney who understands the language and legalities surrounding a will, it is also possible to write a will yourself.
Leaving an estate to charity
When movie producer David Gundlach passed away suddenly from a heart attack in October 2011, few people knew he intended to leave his massive personal fortune to a local charity in his hometown of Elkhart, Indiana. Gundlach gave away all of his $125 million to the Elkhart County Community Foundation. One doesn’t have to be a famous movie producer or sports star to donate assets to charity in wills. Individuals sometimes make the choice to leave a portion of their estate to a favorite charity to create a legacy that helps the unfortunate. Such a decision may surprise family members, so it may be wise to discuss plans when drafting wills and ensuring that the correct method of bequeathing estates to charities is followed. continued on next page

Advertising Feature When a will is written, it is typically in a person’s best interest to consult with an estateplanning attorney prior to making any decisions. When working in conjunction with a ﬁnancial planner, an attorney can help you grow your estate and ensure your assets will be distributed according to your wishes. When writing a will that includes charitable donations, be very precise in the verbiage and specify your wishes and intents so they are carried out correctly. Just like feisty family members, charities can be quite aggressive in their pursuits of funding, particularly if they have reason to believe that money will be coming their way as part of a person’s will. In order to prevent unnecessary battling among attorneys, it is best to have all of your wishes clearly explained and spelled out so the people and organizations who matter the most to you receive the money -and that you’re not simply funding legal bills. Leaving money to a charity can have ﬁnancial advantages for the other benefactors of your will. A bequest to a charity reduces the size of your estate, meaning less money is subject to estate taxes. While you cannot beneﬁt from an income-tax deduction while you are alive, you will cut down on taxes afterward, which would normally take away money that was left to family and friends. Despite the advantage to bequeathing money to a charity, it is not something that is very common. According to Russell N. James III, a professor at Texas Tech University who conducted a study that analyzed 20,000 Americans over the age of 50 from 1995 to 2006, only around 9.5 percent of those who donated more than $500 a year to charity planned on making a charitable bequest after their deaths. Those who want to save money in a tax-efﬁcient way upon making a charitable donation can choose to donate an IRA account to charity. This will save your heirs money in income taxes that they otherwise would have to pay when the IRA is distributed. There are some gray areas in doing this properly, so it is best to consult with a tax advisor. Donating a portion or all of your estate to charity can be a way to leave a legacy and support an organization that has special meaning to you.

nforgettable is a dazzling evening of musical theatre showcasing one of the most beloved performers of all time, Nat King Cole. Cole’s legacy endures to this day because of his contribution to American music, his smooth jazz style, his charisma and his success as a black man during the 1960s. Actor/singer Don Stewart honours Cole’s life through this marvelous production, Unforgettable: the Music of Nat King Cole, coming to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 2 at 7:30 p.m. Come see why Cole was a beloved superstar whose appeal transcended the boundaries of race, culture, and geography just as Stewart transcends the years and becomes this musical giant. The songs are here too. Incredible hits like “Mon a Lisa,” “Route 66,” “Too Young,” “Paper Moon” and the classic, “Unforgettable.” Stewart brings us this unmistakable music and a musical biography that ranges from Cole’s pianoplaying days in low-down dives and honky-tonks to his breakthrough contract with Capitol Records. The whole story is there: his fight against racism at the studio and in his very own Hollywood neighbourhood. Go on a fascinating musical journey as the show follows the phenomenal story of Nat King Cole, the incredible odds that this son of an Alabama preacher was up against and how the young jazz pianist became a worldwide singing sensation. Jazz singer Stewart, with a unique style and a rich voice capable of great emotional power and sensitivity, tells the stories of love, hurt and joy in a memorable and beautiful performance that will leave audience members transfixed. Stewart has developed an elegant style that is as unforgettable as Nat King Cole himself. “My thing is, nobody can be Nat King Cole,” says Stewart, “So I don’t even want to try. I just present what happened.” On stage, Stewart serves as narrator in Unforgettable and moves in and out of character as required telling the story of Cole’s life through scenes, stories and over 40 memorable songs, including popular hits like “Sweet Lorraine,” “Rambling Rose,” “Autumn Leaves” and more. Accompanying him is special guest Cayla Brooke, who portrays the equally legendary Peggy Lee and a live jazz band led by Vancouver jazz pianist and musical director Ron Johnston. Join Stewart as he examines Nat King Coles relationships with the key people in his life packaged along with those unforgettable hit songs which have become part of the soundtrack of our lives. ◗ For tickets call the centre box office at 604-391SHOW (7469), visit in person or purchase online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function.

he Chilliwack Cultural Centre will be able to upgrade the sound system in the main theatre thanks to $15,526 in federal funding announced by Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl on Tuesday. The money from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage will allow the Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society to purchase specialized sound equipment for the 584-seat theatre. “Our government recognizes the importance of investing in cultural spaces in our communities,” Strahl said in a press release. “We are pleased to support important facilities like the Chilliwack Cultural Centre because it serves as a community hub for residents.” Centre director Michael Cade thanked the government for the funding. “The funding allows local community performing arts groups and professional touring artists the opportunity to perform at the Centre without the need to rent expensive microphones every time they mount a dramatic or musical theatre production,” Cade said. The Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society manages the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on behalf of the City of Chilliwack. The Canada Cultural Spaces Fund “seeks to improve physical conditions for artistic creativity and arts presentations or exhibitions. It is also designed to increase access for Canadians to performing arts, visual arts, media arts, museum collections and heritage displays.”
A Crooner’s Story to Remember
azz singer Don Stewart, with his unique style and a rich barotone voice tells stories of love, hurt and joy in Unforgettable, the Music of Nat King Cole. A memorable and beautiful performance that will leave audience members transfixed at the Cultural Centre, March 2 at 7:30pm. Developing a sophisticated style that is as ‘unforgettable’ as Nat King Cole himself, Stewart is sure to enchant all who hear him as he showcases one of the most beloved performers of all time. Honoring Cole’s life through this marvelous production we are given a glimpse into the past and see why Cole became such a beloved superstar whose appeal transcended the boundaries of race, culture, and geography. His legacy endures to this day because of his contribution to American music, his smooth jazz style, his charisma and his success as a black man during the 1960’s. Leading the way for generations to come, Cole was the first coloured performer to star in his own TV show and won the love of millions around the world. Follow the fastinating story of Nat King Cole as he struggles through incredible obstacles on a musical journey to become one of the most recognizable American voices since Sinatra. Incredible hit songs like Mona Lisa, Route 66, Too Young, Paper Moon and the classic Unforgettable are recreated as Stewart brings us this unmistakable voice in a musical biography that ranges from Nat’s piano-playing days in low down dives to his breakthrough contract with Capitol Records. The whole story is there...
With Special Guest Cayla Brooke portraying the equally legendary Peggy Lee and a live jazz band led by musical director Ron Johnston you’ll slip back to a magical time in music history. Stewart also serves as Narrator on stage, moving in and out of character as required, telling the story of Cole’s life through stories and songs in Unforgettable. Sit back and enjoy popular hits like Sweet Lorraine, Rambling Rose, Autumn Leaves and many, many more as your ears are treated to this legend’s sweet songs! Join Stewart as he examines the relationships with the people who influenced Cole’s life, the incredible odds that this son of an Alabama preacher was up against, and how the young jazz pianist became a worldwide singing sensation. Surrender yourself to those unforgettable hit songs from the ultimate story teller Nat King Cole, call the Centre Box Office 604-391-SHOW(7469). Unforgettable; the Music of Nat King Cole is generously sponsored by Soprema, Barton Hub, Amax Security Plus, Sutton Group Showplace Realty, MNP, Odlum Brown, Bathe Plumbing, The Chilliwack Times, Star FM, The City of Chilliwack, Department of Canadian Heritage and the British Columbia Arts Council.

Andrew Bryson Young The life and career of Dr. Andrew B. Young – family physician, professional delegate, community organizer, loyal companion and beloved father – came to a close on Wednesday, February 13 in the late afternoon. Dr. Young had struggled with an escalating illness since the previous summer, and was transferred to hospice care in Chilliwack only days before, where he passed away surrounded by his treasured family and devoted friends. He was seventy-eight. A profound sense of loss is deeply felt by his wife, Marilyn; his daughters, Cathy and Sharon; by his sons, Brian, Don and David; by his grandchildren James, Lindsay, Daryl, Andrew, Mackenzie and Madalynn; by is brother Archie and his sisters, Isobel and Jean, as well as by his many nieces and nephews and their families. This sad deprivation is shared by a sizeable company of Dr. Young’s life-long friends, and by the community, the profession and the country which he served with such enthusiasm, and in which he so earnestly believed. “Drew” was born in 1934, the eighth child of John and Mary Young (nee Bryson). His parents had immigrated to British Columbia from Scotland ﬁve years before, his father taking up a new situation as herdsman and stock manager to the nascent Faculty of Agriculture at the University of British Columbia. Expecting the loss of two brothers, one to illness and one to the Canadian war effort, Drew’s young life was blithe and happy, spent at University Hill School under the sternly benevolent tutelage of Miss Skelton, playing basketball and baseball with bosom pals Don Gunning Herb Forward, serving on the student council, and assisting his father in the running of SPACE the University Dairy. Drew’s memories of those years were of a ‘forest freedom’ and youthful riot such as is known by too few youngsters today. He went on to attend UBC in the Faculty of Sciences, where a strong academics BOOKING showing allowed him to enterACCOUNTS the sixth class of the new UBC Medical School, PAYABLE having completed only three years For: SCI as an undergraduate. He graduated UBC Med in 1959, followed by an internship at Calgary General Hospital, Rep: AEWood having married the love of his life, Marilyn Gowan, two years before.
The young couple settled in the eastern Fraser Valley, in the farming and then military town of Chilliwack, and had ﬁve children. Drew took up a large family practice with full hospital privileges, running a clinic with his brother Dr. Archie Young, a partnership that was to last for thirty-ﬁve years. “Dr. Drew” became known to the people of the valley as a physician of exemplary patience and compassion, in whose presence no ailing soul ever felt neglected or forgotten. For Marilyn and his children as home, for the ﬂedgling Chilliwack YMCA, for his colleagues and community, he built a good life. The Young family occupied its time with sport – skiing and swimming, golf and basketball, board games and bridge; with summer travel to virtually every corner of the B.C. wilderness; and with reading and study of all manner of topics, from Canadian politics to Darwinian evolution, these often occasioning perfervid discussion around the family dinner table, where Drew’s skills as moderator were much required. Christmas Eve at the Young household was typically a crowded affair, involving a large cohort of family friends, as well as a multitude of Drew’s patients from all walks of valley life, dropping off tokens of gratitude to the family doctor who had shown them such empathy in time of need. Apart from his private practice, Dr. Young’s career as public servant and representative of the Canadian medical profession was perhaps the contribution in which he took most pride. In 1976 be became a delegate to the B.C. Medical Association’s board of directors, the beginning of a commitment that was to last for more than a decade. He was eventually to serve with distinction as Chairman of the B.C.M.A Economic Committee, Chairman of the Canadian Medical Association Council on Health Care, delegate to the C.M.A. General Council Member At Large of the B.C.M.A Executive, as well as a member of a many other professional commissions. His colleagues remember him as an accomplished ‘consensus builder’, whose inexhaustible goodwill and rational faith in his peers was an inspiration. In 1994 the UBC Medical Alumi presented him the Dr. Wallace Wilson Leadership Award. This was followed in 1996 by the B.C.M.A Dr. David Bachop Gold Medal in recognition of an outstanding contribution to health care by a family practitioner in the province; and in 2003 by the B.C.M.A Silver Medal of Service for dedication to patient care and service to organized medicine. If Drew Young himself had been given the opportunity to sum up the entirety of his own active and prosperous life, he would have said simply that he felt so lucky, and so very grateful. In lieu of ﬂowers or any other offerings, donations can be made to the “Drew Young Memorial Fund”, being held In Trust by the “Chilliwack Hospital & Health Care Foundation” (CHHCF). Funds allocated to this memorial will, at the discretion of Dr. Young’s family, be donated to a cause related to Hospital/ Health Care initiatives at Chilliwack General Hospital.

Lots & Acreage
Aries March 21 - April 19: Rest, lie low, deal with head ofﬁce, government agencies, institutions, charitable and spiritual organizations. Start no new projects nor relationships before March 17. Instead, reprise (or ﬁx) the old, or stick with the ongoing. Sunday’s ﬁlled with beauty and pleasant notions, but your advances might be playfully steered aside. Tackle overdue work Monday/Tuesday. Relationships prove important midweek – a great conversation (or news article) and a spiritual awakening or dreamy state occur. Seek changes, health diagnosis, realistic investments and/or intimacy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your popularity grows. Optimism, wish fulﬁllment, light romance and entertainment increase this week and the next few. Old friends return, old wishes are granted, and former ﬂirty, light romantic contacts reappear. New friends and new projects, if started now to March 16, will tend to twirl brightly for awhile, then ﬁzzle. Sunday’s for home, garden, rest, and rejuvenation. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – your creative, speculative and expressive skills rise up. Tackle familiar chores midweek. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em Friday/ Saturday – great things come from partnering! Gemini May 21-June 20: Start no new projects, ventures or relationships before March 17. Until then, protect ongoing projects, especially in career and dealings with authorities. They, and bosses, and parents, are gripped by indecision until then. Be ambitious (not ambiguous). Shore up your position, secure recent advances, Monday/Tuesday – or rest and nurture family, for they are the support for your ambitions. Earlier, Sunday’s for short trips, friends and curiosity. Romance and creativity lure you Wednesday/Thursday: but they conﬂict with your need to grow. You get a lot of work done Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase money, buy/ sell Sunday – garage sales intrigue. (Don’t buy anything big and important.) Short trips, details, communications and paperwork ﬁll Monday/Tuesday (avoid government forms). Focus on home, kids, real estate, security and nutrition midweek. Friday/ Saturday hold romantic/creative success– which ﬁts superbly into February/March’s broad cycle of love, cultural rituals, far travel, wisdom and higher learning. You could fall in love! But remember: start nothing, project nor relationship, before March 17. The best romance is ongoing, or is embodied in an old ﬂame. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: You’ve entered the realm of mystery, lust, health diagnosis and hidden power plays. Something might return from the past in this arena – perhaps a former sexy playmate, perhaps a chance to live a lifestyle you once hungered for, perhaps a former investment opportunity. DO research, ask questions, follow the mystery, and deal with ongoing situations/people or those returning from the past. DON’T start a new relationship, project, investment or venture. All this, to March 17. You’re the subtle star Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Paperwork, errands midweek. Home, family Friday on. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: DON’T start new projects or relationships before March 17. Stick with the ongoing, and situations that return from the past – including a possible return of a former partner or someone you wished was. However, this few-week interval seems designed more to make you ponder the big picture of relationships, than to re-instate an old one permanently. It’s as if you’re on a bridge to a very different land of love, and are stalled: not to turn you back, but to make you think. Lie low Sunday. Tackle everything with conﬁdence Monday/Tuesday. Money, midweek. Casual friends late week.

Feb. 24 - Mar. 2, 2013
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Much work faces you, but tackle only routine, ongoing or formerly neglected chores before March 17. DON’T start big new projects, employ new staff, nor buy machinery, tools, computers – lemons abound. A former job might be offered. If you’re seeking employment, canvas former bosses. Sunday’s bright, hopeful, happy. Retreat and rest Monday/Tuesday -- government-related tasks go well. (Though they, too, face delay.) Your energy and pizzazz return strongly midweek, but luck (in love, learning, law and travel) mixes with domestic problems. Your money luck soars Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This week goes from better to best! (But don’t be tempted to start a new project or relationship before March 17.) Sunday’s for ambition and community reputation: elevate yours by joining, helping. Optimism, popularity, wish fulﬁllment and general delight ﬁll Monday/Tuesday: an old ﬂame or ﬂirty friend could reappear . You’re on a month-long winning streak of romance, creativity, sports or pleasure. You can renew contacts on many levels, including business. Retreat midweek to rest and contemplate. Your energy and charisma soar Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed, attract love. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Don’t start new projects or relationships before March 17, Sage, especially in family, domestic, nutrition, real estate, retirement or security zones. (E.g., you could ﬁnd new renovations have left no room for the basement stairs.) Stick to ongoing projects, or situations from the past. Clear away neglected home-related chores. Sunday’s mellow, thoughtful, cultural. Show your ambition Monday/Tuesday (but start nothing new!). Happiness, optimism and friends ﬁll midweek. Success assured with institutions, government, meditation, rest, health and research Friday/Saturday.
Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before March 17, Cap, especially in mail, computer, telephony, ofﬁce systems, stationery, or travel. Don’t buy a car or any equipment. You might rediscover a lost book, letter, photo – or an entire “lost acquaintance.” (Don’t invest too heavily in the last.) Sunday’s secrets will open, if you diplomatically push. A mellow, understanding mood ﬂows over you Monday/Tuesday – love (or the hope of love) is possible! Be ambitious midweek, display your skills: luck accompanies you. Social delights, popularity, light romance succeed splendidly Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money’s just an abstract way to mete out power, security, position, food, shelter, clothing, medical, dental...and most love is entwined with these. So chase money now to March 19, Aquarius. You won’t be neglecting love, but supporting it. But don’t start a new project or venture. Stick with ongoing dollar situations, or reprise those from the past. (E.g., sell an old article, or seek a job where you worked before.) Sunday’s made exciting by a sensual person. Sex, secrets and ﬁnances, Monday/Tuesday. Understanding, mellow love midweek. Ambition, career Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, luck and charisma remain high, Pisces. Remember, start nothing before March 17. Until then, you’ll remain indecisive about goals, partnerships, opportunities, relocation, and love. Stick with ongoing projects, or reprise old ones – avoid the new. Everything’s smooth this week. Chores call Sunday. Relationships, opportunities and goals arise Monday/Tuesday – though excitement occurs, remember: no new links or projects. Life’s mysteries emerge midweek, but hold few rewards if you solve them. Friday/Saturday bring gentle love, intellectual venues and superb luck. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 604-886-4808
